Stunning 14’2 coloured Cob gelding for loan
Barney is a super 11 year old he has fantastic paces and an excellent temperament, good to do in all ways, a perfect gent on the road 100% in the heaviest of traffic, tractors, skip lorries you name it he’s not bothered, never sharp or spooky he will ride out alone or in company, Barney has a lovely soft snaffle mouth. You can jump on him bare back in the field with or without a halter. He will stand for hours to be groomed and bathed he doesn’t mind being sprayed with show sheen or fly spray.
He loves to pop a fence and has done almost everything cross country, show jumping, hunting (with previous owner), dressage, fun rides, beach rides and even team GBR training days. Barney would suit a confident rider to make the most of his potential. Fully CHAPS registered, wormed, teeth recently done and shod up all round.
Barney is a firm family favourite, the children adore him, groom and handle him. Barney can nap a little during flatwork and needs a confident rider to push him on as he has been known to throw in the odd buck or rear with a nervous rider.
Barney loves riding over the moors and is fantastic in open spaces and has fantastic breaks, he is a real lovable charmer who will go through your pockets searching for treats. We think Barney may have a slight pollen allergy and ride him in a nose net during the summer.
Barney must stay at Sparhanger and will only be loaned to the right person.
Jess 17 years young. 14.1 Welsh section D 110% bomb proof in the heaviest of traffic. Jess is a real gem she will jump 3’6″ with ease and will go round a course on auto pilot if required never even clipping a fence no matter its height.
She hacks out alone or in company is easy to catch, groom and shoe, sadly we just don’t have the time to ride Jess as we have too many other horses to keep fit. She can be a little moody when in season but provided you catch her with a mint she will come without a fuss and once her head collar is on she has perfect manners in season or not.
Jess can be cometative in open space and a little strong in the mouth when out on the moor. She is a real schoolmistress and will teach anyone to jump, we would like to offer Jess out on a long term loan with a view to buy provided she stays at Sparhanger and she will only be offered for sale to the right people, we would be just as happy for her to stay on loan until she retires again provided you are the right people. We love Jess dearly she is part of our family and the right home is the most important thing, if you can love and look after Jess and live in or near Lynton please come and see her.
